Rural Emergency Medicine Course
We are pleased to announce that planning for the 2024 Rural Emergency Medicine Course has officially begun!
The event is being planned for May 8-10, 2024 and will feature many exciting and interactive lectures and afternoon sessions for the three days.
This course is designed for physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, but all who are interested are welcome. The course will review low-frequency, high-risk emergencies and provide practice for lifesaving procedures in a realistic, controlled environment. Our highly relevant and informative core sessions are updated yearly by board-certified emergency medicine physicians. This years event will feature small group sessions, high-fidelity simulation, ultrasound training, and procedure skills stations. We are also planning on utilizing lightly-embalmed cadavers for some of the procedure stations, however, cadavers are in short supply this year. If we are unable to obtain cadavers, these sessions will be done using alternative, hands-on training modalities.
Procedure training this year includes: chest tube insertion, cricothyrotomies, ultrasound IV insertion, IO insertion, umbilical catheter insertion, splinting, and domestic violence recognition and treatment. Lectures will be given by board-certified physicians in a multitude of specialties including: emergency medicine, pediatric emergency medicine, ophthalmology, orthopedics, neurosurgery, OB/Gyn, toxicology, trauma surgery, and dermatology.
Our goal is to provide a unique experience for each participant and be able to cater to what you need and want to learn, so spots are limited.
Mark your calendars and check back in when registration opens for the 2024 Course!
